My lists for the Goldrush Rampage


These are the lists that I played in the Goldrush Rampage.


We played divide and Conquer, with a 3 list requirement.  Three lists, character restrictions, and reinforcements really made for an interesting list design


My E-Nemo list was my anti Hordes list. I felt Nemo allowed me to out or equal threat most hordes lists and Alpha just as strongly if not stronger. Energizer and Nemos feat allow for some great attrition or assassination turns. Chargers are amazing, but with his feat turn they are pretty crazy and almost always useful. In non feat turns a Single Focus point still works wonders with them, allowing double fire or one cheap juicey shot. Have a Charger show up in Reinforcements, allows you to really but them to work out side of the feat turn, as it arrives with full focus.


My Caine List was what I thought was a balanced all comers list. I focus on building up the Stormblade ranged game and in after playing in the event, I think I want rangers with them in the future. Both Games I played with Caine, the Stormblades refused to die, having an early game defencive buff (arcane shield form Jr. or Blur from Caine) and buffed by Rupert with Tough and fearless. With them hanging in for a turn or three longer then they seemed they should, allowed them to bring plenty of pain. Getting Jarl Skuld to one health and assassinating Kharchev.


My P-Haley list was my anti Terrain list, encase i got stuck on a forest loaded table or something similar. It's a real beating and I want to play it more. It was also fun with reinforcements because having a full focus Hunter showing up on your feat turn is just sweet. It's also a pretty balanced list, but I feel it's stronger against infantry spam as opposed to a Heavy beast list. It can crack some heavy armor, but it really depends on it's feat turn to do the damage. The Storm strider is nice in this list, because removing the enemies' charge with Temporal Barrier really increases it's durability against Infantry and TB also increases it's accuracy. Nyss Hunters on nutty when they assault and make it into melee under the effects of her Feat. I think I'm going to focus on this list for a while.
